I really liked the look of my vintage couch (and I still have it), but less so the functionality of it. So I got a new inexpensive couch that has fabric that wipes off and can go in the washing machine. My kids can jump on it and it doesn’t matter. They can write on it and it doesn’t matter. They have done those things quite a lot in the short time I’ve had this couch. And I’m much happier because I’m not worried about my vintage couch. Living with kids means that things will be ruined, but they are so much more important than my furniture.
